The first full week of school has flown by. Everyone has settled into our new class quickly and we have been hard at work. We have made new friends and enjoyed playing a game where we got to eat M&Ms. For each differently coloured M&M chosen, we had to answer a question which told others about ourselves. This could have been when our birthday is, what our favourite food is or if we have any pets.
In Maths we have learning about place value and had lots of fun using various apparatus to support our learning. We have been looking at 2, 3 and 4 digit numbers and the different numbers we can create using dienes apparatus.
Half of our class had their first swimming lesson this week and really enjoyed themselves. The other half of the class did Outdoor PE and will go swimming after Christmas. Please remember to ensure children are not wearing earrings on PE days.
We have been focusing on biographies in English and the different features we need to include when we write a biography at the end of next week. We have focused upon learning to write in paragraphs and how to group information together correctly and in a chronological order. We enjoyed reading about Roald Dahl and Ellie Simmonds and reordering the information correctly.
Our ‘Champion of the Week’ is Hannah for her consistent hard work and effort every lesson. She has tried very hard, listening to instructions carefully. Well done Hannah!
